Short summary
Numerical weather prediction model HIRLAM includes prognostic treatment of lake surface state since 2012. Forecast is based on the Freshwater Lake model (Flake). We compared the predicted lake water temperature, freeze-up and break-up dates as well as the ice thickness and snow depth during six years over 45 lakes in Finland against observations by Finnish Environment Institute. Water surface temperatures and freezing of lakes were well predicted but the ice tended to melt too early in spring.
